I'm not quite sure if this fits into Stories or General. A mod is welcome to move it if they so desire.

Disclaimer: Do not go around shooting at or into houses. I am a partial owner of this house, and it is currently being demolished, so what I've done is only helping the demolition crew. I have appointed myself the head of the demolition crew's ballistics department.

The gun used was my <a href="http://members.fortunecity.com/gyroman/CSVR-4.html">CSVR-4</a>:
1.5" x 7' barrel
1.5:1 C:B ratio
Metered propane
65K volt stungun ignition
Twin chamber fans


Potato versus wood siding overlaying brick insulation: Not very effective.

I've decided to move operations indoors, shooting from one room, through a doorway, into another room. This is two shots placed very closely together.

This is what the other side of the wall looks like.

For this ugly green room, all shots were done outside, in through windows. This is one shot. I'm not sure how the second impact occured.

Impact of a wooden missile. Fragments of the missle flew all over the room after impact.

Ceiling shot with a potato. You can see the starchy splatter.

These window blind center rolls were just begging to be shot out of my gun.

These are the wooden missiles I mentioned earlier. They were aerodynamically unstable, so I decided to use them for impact shots. Please keep phallic symbolism references to yourself.

What I could find of the missiles after impact.

Gyro, that sounds like fun! if you still have access to the site, i'd say take some metal projectiles into the walls :D

was the gun as powerful as you expected / was the damege created by the gun what you had expected?

PCGuy, enough with the 12 gram refrences!!! you seem very eager to shoot 12 grams! :p

One of the reasons I keep using potatoes is, I think that making holes in things with a soft projectile is more impressive than with something stronger. I only used the wooden missiles because I wanted to get rid of them.

I've used this gun to put potatoes through 5/8" plywood before, so the damage was about what I expected. I must say though, after impaling the blind center rolls into the wall, I was giggling uncontrollably for a few minutes.

I have access to the site until the house is gone, but I don't have much time to get over there to shoot some more. I also use the buddy system, I won't shoot unless I have a friend with me, just in case. It's more fun with a friend anyway.

I just like 12g because if you can get them to shoot correctelly their freakin mini rockets!
But usually they spin out of control... doing noting when they hit sideways to most objects.
